Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) said the House of Representatives passed his amendment to end the funding of gain-0f-function research.

“My amendment to end gain-of-function research funding passed tonight! It’s insane to use taxpayer dollars to create a blueprint for the next pandemic,” Massie wrote Tuesday night.

“I rise in support of my amendment, which essentially prohibits funds from being used or made available to conduct or support gain-of-function research,” Massie said on the House Floor.

“The risks far outweigh the benefits and we should have learned our lesson,” he added.


“Thomas my understanding was Congress voted back around 2014 to do the same. Fauci w Obama & DOD blessing proceeded to shift funding via grants to Peter Daszak Eco Health Alliance over to Wuhan. So if the Bioweapon research is still being conducted there, and it’s also documented to being done in Ukraine per Nuland under oath, and Sudan, then what’s to stop the next Fauci clone from funding via these type of grants around the world and not reducing the risk of future pandemics?” Tom Moore asked.

“The 2014 ‘pause’ was an executive branch decision – easily made but easily circumvented and easily undone,” Massie answered.

The amendment will now move to the U.S. Senate.

Social media users reacted to the news of Massie’s passed amendment:

From STAT News:

House lawmakers late Tuesday voted to attach a U.S. ban on controversial infectious disease research to legislation that could ultimately fund federal health agencies like the National Institutes of Health.

The bill would bar any federal agencies from funding so-called gain-of-function research, which involves altering a pathogen to study its spread, potentially making it more transmissible or severe in the process.

The spending bill already included a restriction on funding this research in any country determined to be a “foreign adversary,” including China. Scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology studied gain-of-function in some viruses, fueling theories that the Covid-19 pathogen was a lab leak.

As 100 Percent Fed Up noted, the National Institutes of Health wants to fund a lab at Colorado State University that will conduct the same risky research in bats.

NIH Reportedly Plans To Fund Multi-Million Lab For Bat Research In Colorado, Proposed Collaboration With EcoHealth Alliance & Wuhan Lab

From our prior report:

According to an exclusive report from the Daily Mail, the same players who financed dangerous experiments in bats at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology want to build a U.S. taxpayer-funded lab at Colorado State University.

The Wuhan Lab is widely believed to be the source of SARS-CoV-2 and the resulting plandemic.


The outlet reports that the 14,000sq-ft facility, which received a $6.7 million grant from the NIH, will import bats from Asia to study some of the world’s most transmissible pathogens, including Ebola and COVID-19.

“The multi-million-dollar project is a collaboration between Dr Anthony Fauci’s old department at the National Institutes of Health, Colorado State University (CSU) and EcoHealth Alliance (EHA),” Daily Mail writes.

“Emails and notes from meetings show communication and proposed collaboration between people from EHA, CSU, the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), — the lab where Covid-19 is believed to have originated — and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), formerly run by Dr Fauci,” the outlet added.

The same experiments scientists conducted at the Wuhan Lab could potentially take place at Colorado State University’s Foothill Campus in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Construction on the facility has not started, but it plans to open in 2025.
